Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We kicked the day off with a Walk to End Hunger (not a Walk For Hunger, like a lot of people were saying) at the Mall of America early this morning. We were "walk-ons" and did not get sponsors before hand, but we made a contribution at the sign-in table, got a free bottled water and a cheap tee-shirt, and did a few laps around the MOA. Live music was provided as well.

The most interesting site at the MOA was Bernhard Eisel's Giant, which was hanging in the window of the Columbia store.

Followed that up with the first Spinervals workout of the off-season to make room for the turkey.  The Spinervals series is good but like any time on a trainer, it can get dull. I was very pleased that I was able to stay on the bike for the full 80 minutes.  I think it builds mental toughness as well as aerobic base.

The dinner itself was lovely - had some friends over to eat the bird, visit, etc. We enjoyed that a lot and have plenty of left-overs as well.

Tomorrow promises to be very north slope gas related but we'll see more friends in the evening and then a fun-filled weekend (I hope).

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and spent some quality time with friends and family.  That's it, ride safe and stay warm!!
